3 Meals 02:56
How could it be I'm running out of time sir? I'm only 22 sir, I'm only 22 How could it be I feel old now? But I've so much to learn now I only cook three meals now I only cook three meals... How could it be I want to change my style now? I look at you and cry now ‘Cos that was my idea now but no one got to see it So chuck it out chuck it out Chuck it chuck it ch-u-u-u-uck it out...oh oh CHORUS: So I don't know my way, I don't know my way But tell me that it's ok where…where do I belong? Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can learn to be strong? How could it be I'm running out of steam sir? You do know what I mean sir? I'm getting pretty sick now of coughing up these thoughts And I hate to be annoying, I hate to be annoying But if you could just make it stop now oh... CHORUS: So I don't know my way, I don't know my way But tell me that it's ok where...where do I belong? Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can… oh… I’ve got to find a way, I’ve got to find my way So tell me that its okay where…where do I belong Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can learn to be strong? So you might see me following the footsteps that turn in to a slow jog But I can't keep up - they turn in to a fast paced run What level do you speak of my dear as you motion higher with your hands? Am I underneath your ears…Or is that your neck…Or is that your chest? CHORUS: Oh I've got to find my way, I need to find a way But tell me that it's ok where...where do I belong? Is it in your arms or is it somewhere I can… oh… I’ve got to find a way, I’ve got to find my way So tell me that its okay where…where do I belong Is it in your arms or is it somewhere… I can learn to be strong?

Chai Tea 05:55
When something just comes and opens the door Could this be our chance to fly to the stars? Letting go seems easy, moving on seems strange And finding out that one of us has changed When there's no more chai tea for me No more chai tea for me.... Yesterday I began to paint The face of me and the words I sent to you the other day Now there's no more chai tea for me No more chai tea for me.... Is this forever or forever just for now? I hope it's the latter but I don't know somehow Oh well just tell me one thing before I go Just tell me you don't love me, so then I know... That there's no more chai tea for me No more chai tea for me...

Bicycle 03:24
I am feeling like a re-enactment is occurring I am feeling like I've mucked it all up yet again If I could ride a bike I'd ride away into the sunset I know you know what that feels like I know you know what that feels like... CHORUS: If you got something you want to tell me darlin’ Please, can you hold it in until we meet this Sunday Oh…I need to think about this path I want to take On my bicycle whoa oh... I am feeling like my voice is stuck down in my throat I am feeling like a stranger inside my own skin If I could ride a bike I'd ride away and visit Norway I know you know what that feels like I know you know what that feels like... CHORUS: If you got something you want to tell me darlin’ Please, can you hold it in until we meet this Sunday Oh…I need to think about this path I want to take On my bicycle whoa oh... Always going away Why can't I come with you one of these days? Oh please don't say that if we keep going on like this We may not get through…may not get through May not get through...through…through CHORUS: If you got something you want to tell me darlin’ Please, can you hold it in until we meet this Sunday Oh…I need to think about this path I want to take On my bicycle whoa oh...

Am I in over my head? Some days I wake up and wish I was a nurse or a lawyer instead But I've worked at this since I was three Since when my teacher told me I was too fat to do ballet So listen up can't you see I'm more than those people who you see and who have said that they love me I've got so much I want to say But if you don't hear me - I want to do floristry at TAFE...floristry at TAFE... Where you going? no one's showing up today I guess it's just the weather keeping them inside Maybe you could bring a friend or two to fill it up And I will buy them a drink with my 15 dollars pay Where you going no one's showing up today I guess it's just the weather keeping them inside But I would like to thank you all for coming 'cos there's so few of you I'll find it easy to socialise... Am I in over my head? Some days I wake up and wish I was a nurse or a lawyer instead But I've worked at this since I was three Since when my teacher told me I was too fat to do ballet

Chew Love 02:25
It's times like these that I thank God that I can write a song To overcome this troubled mind while it's too busy singing along I wish I could just breathe you out the way I breathed you in But I love you…I love you… CHORUS: Could this be chew-a-chew-a-l-l-love yes? chew-a-chew-a-love? It's times like these that make me down so down I cannot see But I refuse to write a song that's hateful and so angry I know I was upset but you know you are the best person that I have… ever met That why… I love you CHORUS: Could this be chew-a-chew-a-l-l-love yes? chew-a-chew-a-love? Please say that you love me still the way That you said you did the other day I can't help but think this is such a waste... [Instrumental] I love you...I love you CHORUS: Could this be… chew-a-chew-a-l-l-love yes? chew-a-chew-a-love? Chew Love… Chew Love etc.

Good Song 02:52
So you say you go down to the village To the bank then you'll fly on a plane Now I'm counting down the seconds Till we'll be together again Did I ever say you write a good song? Did I ever say you write a good song? CHORUS Na Now Now Now Na Now Now Na Now Now you write a good song... Na Now Now Now Na Now Now Na Now Now come on and sing along... Jon Paul got it right, it's good on paper But everyone they must stand alone Don't want you drinking to pass the time now But we can send dirty texts on the phone Did I ever say you write a good song? Did I ever say you write a good song? CHORUS Na Now Now Now Na Now Now Na Now Now you write a good song... Na Now Now Now Na Now Now Na Now Now come on and sing along... You write a good song You write a good song [Instrumental] CHORUS Na Now Now Now Na Now Now Na Now Now you write a good song... Na Now Now Now Na Now Now Na Now Now come on and sing along...

Sunday 04:06
Sunday is looking like a good day for us Friday wasn't looking so damn crash hot We'll pack it up and we'll go away Waiting for the day when we can just stop. Because we can. Because we can. Sunday is looking like a good day for us I'll be playing all my new songs for a new friend of mine You know I may be moving out with her And you won't be around the corner any more I'll pack it up and I'll go away Waiting for the day when we can just stop. Because we can. Because we can. Save this moment, don't be affraid Cos love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need Love this moment till your dying day Cos love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need love is all we need Sunday is looking like a good day for us I'll wait until you've taken back your trailer truck We'll pack it up and we'll go away Waiting for the day the day that we can just stop...
